UA895 ORD-HKG 18Nov17 My wife asked the captain who said yes.

UA 896 HKG-ORD 28Nov17 Request put through a flight attendant: yes.

UA 952 ORD-MUC 30Nov17 Request put through a flight attendant who answered that the system was broken on the plane so the captain would not be able to put it on.

UA 953 MUC-ORD 05Dec17 My wife asked the captain who was extremely nice and said yes. Unfortunately, the only thing that you could hear was that telltale sound that indicates it's on but not transmitting. Then, looking at my file on United planes, I realized that we had flown the same plane last year (772 plane #2894 ) on the HKG-ORD route and the same thing happened.

My wife finds that it's way easier to request channel 9 when flying in Polaris Business as boarding occurs by the first door and frequently the captain is still in the galley. For the times we fly in Economy she would not ask a flight attendant and just hopes it's on.
